Freakin' Friday! SmartControl Remote


In what we like to call the Rocky Horror Remote, the company One For All has found a way to skip through the commercials with a flick to the right or head to a combination of left and back for channel selection or rewind. Up and down will get you play and the opposite results in pause. A double tap gives you mute. The SmartControl Motion remote works with Freeview+ or Sky+ and can handle up to six different devices such as HDTVs, iPod docks, theater systems or game consoles. There are white backlit keys including some that are dedicated and a handy turn-off by holding the power button down a few seconds or turning the remote over. Pre-order for a Nov. 7 release.

Let's do the Time Warp again...
